“The best gelato for miles”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Biagi is so modern and pristine, with the staff attired in spotless white, that you could be forgiven for thinking you had entered a clinic! The ice cream and semifreddo are absolutely amazing and the service is friendly and efficient. We always go to Biagi when we visit Sarzana. I have rated the 'value' as 'average' There is nothing 'average' about Biagi, but it is quite expensive! But well worth it!

“Possibly the very best ice cream on the planet”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

I've been to the famous Vivoli in Firenze, to many, many gelaterie, and after almost 30 years of sampling and searching, I have to say that nowhere have I ever found ice cream of such consistently outrageously good quality as at Biagi in Sarzana. The fruit ice creams and sorbets are to die for. They taste more intensely of the fruit than the fruit itself. The Pistachio is unbelievable, without that ghastly artificial green colour that so many places insist on adding. Their coffee ice cream is divine; smooth, creamy, rich, aromatic & toasted exactly right. I could go on for ever. Just go there and try some. They also serve to take away.

“One of the best ice-cream in Italy”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

And actually I can say in the world because outside Italy it's difficult find out shops that don't belong to multinational companies or following the right recipe to make a classic ice cream. The magic starts early in the morning, when the owners go outside and buy genuine ingredients only from near area, they're not using flavours or industrial compound at all. The milk is coming directly from the town. You can see that it's a good ice cream looking at the boxes in the fridge: first of all you can see the icecream, be careful when you're not able to see the product even if looks like an old fashioned ice-cream bin, secondly you will see it's flat and doesn't look like an exploding mixture, this means that no thickener is used. My favorite tastes are the "semifreddo", made using also milk cream. Other tastes that I can suggest are the dark chocolate and pistachio. Seasonal tastes shall be present as well. Portions are good and prices are fair.
